Eddie 4"x4" oil sold
Something I have been thinking about.....painting, for me, is like an itch that I have to scratch. For a long time I had that itch and I ignored it, then I discovered the daily painters "movement" and it gave me the kick-start I needed. Then life got in the way, and I took a hiatus for a few months and when I returned to daily painting, it felt like a wonderful friend that I had been neglecting. The lesson for me in this is to pay attention to those nagging feelings and attend to them without making excuses why I can't do it, or why I shouldn't make it a priority. I feel this way about yoga, eating right, and my family and friends....that makes for a full life in my estimation. I used to be a teacher and when I was that, it was my priority and I am thankful I had that career and met so many wonderful students, parents and fellow educators. My creative energy went to that then, but I always knew I needed to attend to that itch to paint.
